FirstLook


 
In addition to printing high-quality markings for other decal companies, Fantasy Printshop also produces their own decals under the brand name of Euro Decals that includes a growing collection of specific aircraft decals.

 

 

The newest addition to the Euro Decals line is ED32-109 - Messerschmitt Emils Part 1 in 1/32 scale.

Euro Decals actually released these same subjects in 1/72 and 1/48 scales back in 2012. It is nice to see the larger scale joining its smaller siblings.

 

 

These decals will be suitable for either the Eduard or Dragon Bf 109 E-3, E-4 and E-7 kits.
 
The featured aircraft in the 1/32 scale release are:

  1. Bf 109 E-7/B, S9+RS of 8./ZG 1 (some references say III./ZG 1), Russia, Summer 1942. 
     
  2. Bf 109 E-3, 6-99 of Grupo num. 25, Spanish Air Force, Spain, 1939. 
     
  3. Bf 109 E-3/B, DG200 of No.1426 (Enemy Aircraft) Flight, Royal Air Force, United Kingdom, 1941. 
     
  4. Bf 109 E-3, J-377 of Flieger Kompanie 21, Swiss Air Force, early 1940s. 
     
  5. Bf 109 E-4, Black 13 of 8./JG 1, 1941. 
     
  6. Bf 109 E-4, White 1 of the Royal Bulgarian Air Force, Winter 1944-45. 
     
  7. Bf 109 E-4, White 10/W.Nr.5244 of 13 Squadron, Slovak Air Force, April 1943. 
     
  8. Bf 109 E-3, White 3/W.Nr.0820 flown by Unteroffizier Ludwig Fröba of 4./JG 77, Norway, October 1940.

Conclusion
